I think this one is one of the worst. A 'monster'. Version 1A. Take a vaguely predatorial body. Add all kinds of spikes, tentacles, eyes, claws etc. that you can think of. Done. No concept, no perspective, no identity. The only cool thing about it is that it is bound by some kind of ritual dagger, but that is not communicated well by the model as such. The dagger is just another one of all those details preventing the model from doing a distinct impression.

And it's name? 'Slaughterbrute'.  :icon_redface:

I really like the new golden griffon. It's a massive holy griffon made of gold. Simple and effective, well designed, great interpretation of a classic Empire concept. Right on target.

I want one, big, in an ornate gold frame, over my fireplace.

I'll also be taking one of those, please.

Your work looks really great. In particular I like the highlights on the steam tank! I've never seen it done like that before.  :eusa_clap:

Looking really nice. Good work.

I've noticed if you paint the GW knights very well then they look better.


But that is the case with all models, right? That if you paint them very well they look better?

I had the impression he was Scottish?

The knight looks great, I like the colours. There is something with the eyes of the dwarf that doesn't look quite right, but maybe I just don't understand how it's sculpted.

Big horses look better, though.  :-)

But I don't hate our knights so much, just a little. I don't think they are very well sculpted. Some parts lack definition or just don't look good. It's also annoying that they don't rank up properly and that the cloaks/pelts don't fit.

Otherwise they are OK. Lots of extras.

Coffee and cheese & ham/baloney sandwich.

If at home perhaps also eggs, stir-fried with tomato paste. And orange juice. Then perhaps also a toast with butter and honey to finish it off nicely.

4-6 hours, friendly games only. Movement and deployment phases take a lot of time (I think we're too pedantic about this), and there is a lot of flipping in the rulebooks. But it's a social thing anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Furthermore, it is my opinion that TexasYankee really should eat his vegetables.

@ maza, my list is fixed so not going add the hbvg, and my steam tank when ever i shoot with it, always rolls a misfire, so i only shoot it at very last resort.

I have to say though, it was probably the best piece of advice I ever gave anyone. Of course it had to be useless.  :icon_cry:

any advice for protecting my cannons from pesky gutter runners?

I find that the HBVG is good for this. The gutter runners have two deployment options: scouts and like reserves but from any table edge (I think?), so it's hard to know where they'll come from. The HBVG's ability to pivot and shoot (and actually kill) is excellent in this situation. You could try to divert them with your archers, but I think that might be harder to pull off.

If I were you I'd consider adding a HBVG + engineer at the expense of a cannon and some of your archers. You have another cannon on your Steam Tank, and once the HBVG clears the gutter runners, it will usually be able to hurt, say, a Doomwheel.

Good luck!

Yes, I think a common solution is to assemble the unit in a particular order. First build one rank, then build the next rank in such a way that it won't touch the first etc. Each model has his particular place in the unit.

I don't know about the lathe, but I do know that there is no excuse for not growing a beard like that.

It helps me to be in a routine.  Typically, I do a lot of painting very early in the morning.  Wake up, get a cup of coffee, paint while I finish it...breakfast, then work. 

This way I get a little painting in everyday.

I use this routine periodically. It's better to paint early in the morning. At night I'm often too devastated to do anything useful, browsing the Internet is pretty much what I can manage.

Looks really good. Please show us more. I dig the grey, muted tone of the WP on foot.

Here are some examples of halberdier/militia conversions, from xisor and kwest on this site:



Good luck!

You've got some great advice already, I just wanted to encourage you to get your pics up. I'm not a particularly technical person or an expert photographer but found it quite simple to improve my pictures with a cheap desktop tripod, macro mode, lots of light from different angles (no flash!) and a white or modelled terrain background. I don't think I ever consulted my manual, just fiddled a little with different options. I'm sure I could improve further but I'm pretty satisfied with my results as is.

Looks amazing, congrats!  :eusa_clap:
